OKLAHOMA - Many Oklahomans said they hope to hear more about important issues at Sunday night's presidential debate rather than finger pointing.

Others we spoke with told NewsChannel 4 they don't even plan on watching.

"It’s hard to want to vote for either one of them to be honest with you," said an Oklahoman.

That's an opinion we found most share.

"To me, they’re both really, really bad candidates. It’s actually the first time I get to vote for a president. I just became a United States citizen, and I don’t want to vote for either one of them," said one woman.

"I think it’s pretty dumb how they’re not really talking about helping America. They’re just talking about each other. They’re just going back and forth like little kids," said one gentleman.

"I would just rather talk about the issues instead of just criticizing each other. I just want to talk about the issues. What are you gonna do for the government? What are you gonna do for the country?" an Oklahoma City woman told NewsChannel 4.

The release of the 2005 audio recording of Donald Trump's reportedly demeaning comments about women is expected to be a hot topic at the debate.

Trump has since apologized for it.

"It’s disappointing to me that something as important as this, you know, a government issue like this, an election for such a primary position has taken on such petty, not petty because immorality is not petty, but it’s taken on a whole negative spin on both sides," said a woman.

While many Oklahomans said they're undecided, those who do plan to tune into the debate Sunday night said they're just hoping to hear more about important issues this time around.
